Mayer Brown have advised Countryside Zest (a partnership between Countryside Properties and L & Q) on the launch of the new 57 Bus Service, which connects the new Beaulieu development with Chelmsford Town Centre and the Railway Station.

The Environmental team at Mayer Brown are shortly due to publish their white paper charting the turbulent arguments around the use of diesel on the UK roads in the 21st Century.

We will have to wait and see…
